History: Since 2011, the restaurant has exclusively received inspection ratings of good and excellent. This was its first failed inspection.
What the inspector saw: The inspector observed four priority violations, short of the five that are normally required for a failing probationary rating. However, because the restaurant had similar issues with the cold-holding of food in several recent inspections, it got a probationary rating for a “pattern of non-compliance.” Beyond food temperature issues, the inspector also observed an employee wash a knife without sanitizing it and another set a personal drink near a prep table.
Follow-up: The restaurant passed an April 14 follow-up inspection.
Response: Owner Dean Griffith said adjustments were made to the restaurant’s coolers, and that the other issues have been addressed. “Everything that was noted has been corrected and will stay corrected,” he said.
